Wildlife Release Live-Stream

Join the New Canaan Land Trust and Wildlife in Crisis for a live streaming wildlife release. We’ll be releasing a beautiful red-tailed hawk back to the wild, where it will be given a second chance at life, right here in New Canaan. We might also have a few barred owls too; stay tuned! The release will be streamed via Facebook Live. Viewers can tune in and ask questions about the hawk, the Land Trust preserve, or either organization.

Professor, Author and Visionary Conservationist Doug Tallamy to Speak in New Canaan

Renowned author, professor and researcher, Doug Tallamy, will speak on the topic of his recently published book, “Nature’s Best Hope: A New Approach to Conservation that Starts in Your Yard.” Tallamy is best known for the national conversation he sparked more than a decade ago about the link between healthy ecosystems and human wellbeing. His first book, “Bringing Nature Home”, emphasized the irrefutably significant tie between native plant species, native insects and the rest of the food chain essential for a healthy world. Sponsored by the ten organizations that comprise the New Canaan Pollinator Pathway, Mr. Tallamy’s presentation will offer specific suggestions of how homeowners can turn their properties into conservation corridors and help make a difference for global biodiversity. The event will take place on Tuesday, March 3 at New Canaan Country School Auditorium, 635 Frogtown Road, starting at 7:30 pm (Doors open at 7:00 pm). Tickets are $15.

Drawing on his 29-year conservation career, Hammerling will address what CFPA does to connect people to the land, and the importance of incorporating land and forest conservation into Connecticut’s plans for addressing climate change. Tom Cronin, NCLT’s Board President, Art Berry, Treasurer and Aaron Lefland, Executive Director, will also provide brief updates of the Land Trust’s past year results and the 2020 plan.
